Slim down and power up with more performance, portability and style than ever. Now even thinner at less than an inch thick, the all-new, the Toshiba Satellite L955 laptop gives you incredible power and freedom to stay connected, productive and entertained--at your desk or on the go. Its sizable screen and large intuitive touchpad help you make the most of the new Windows 8 experience. Add the fact it's built with tried, true and tested Toshiba innovation and it's the perfect choice when upgrading to a Windows 8 PC.
The Satellite L955 (model L955-S5360) features a sizable 15.6-inch TruBrite, widescreen display that gives you added screen real estate for multitasking--and it's ideal for watching movies or playing online RPG games. The new, slimmer Satellite L955 comes in a Mercury Silver and includes a sleek, full-sized, raised-tile keyboard with 10-key pad.
It's packed with powerful computing resources, including a SuperMulti drive that can burn a plethora of disc formats, and plenty of ports and storage to give you the freedom to expand, or hold more files and media. And thanks to the built-in webcam and Toshiba Face Recognition software on this machine, you'll enjoy a more convenient way to communicate, log on, or share your laptop among the family.
Take Advantage of Windows 8
Be ready to take advantage of the next big revolution in PC computing: Windows 8. The new Start screen has all of the information you care about in one place, such as your contacts, the weather, and the next appointment on your calendar. Start Page is a completely reinvented interface with interactive tiles that remain up-front and center--and they dynamically change and update in real-time.
With the power and innovation of your new Windows 8 Toshiba PC, you get apps that are always on and easily accessible from your Start screen. You'll also get new, built-in apps for the things you do most, like new Microsoft Mail, Calendar, SkyDrive, Photos, People, and Messaging.
On your Microsoft 8 Toshiba PC, the Charms bar replaces the Start button, offering quick access to search, sharing features, devices and settings. Enjoy the convenience of seeing everything front and center, right where you need it.
